Very beautiful palce - I cannot explain why it reminds me of Hoseva (Israelian region in the desert!?!) - maybe it's the red stone and dark yellow sand

Sand, sea, sand, sea. It’s just one long beautiful beach. The multicoloured cliffs, unfortunately being eroded away with? If you like to beach walk then you will be in your element.

We have been to several beaches and I don’t even know how to describe my experience. The Portugal beaches are some of the best I have ever been at for beauty, beware though this is the Atlantic, don’t expect warm water!

Visited this beach with family and friends. Beautiful and clean beach. There is also a small bar where you can buy ice creams or drinks. Lovely view from above as you can also hike. One of the greatest beach around the area.

This beach which is accessible from the hotel Pine Cliff but also from a public side offers an extraordinary beauty. It has pine trees on its back and the cliffs are really amazing.

You are right above it on the cliff top. Walk along the road that runs to the cliff and there's a small car park and then some steps to the beach. Belharucus becomes Praia de Falesia and then changes its name agin 4 more... More
